The commission In Its written order
and opinion, aseerta that Calhoun, shortly
prior to his retirement, took from tho
funds of this public utility corporation
over $1,000,000 when every available dollar
was sorely needed to Increase tho facili
ties of this company, "and that ho gave
his successor, Jesse Lillenthal, a promis
sory note for $1,030,000, payable one day
after date, which Lillenthal Immediately
wrote down In tho books .of tho company
"as of the value of one dollar."
The $1,000,000 which Calhoun Is charged
with diverting from the funds of the com
pany was used, the commission asserts,
in promr ..ig tho Solano Irrigated farms,
an immense subdivision project which
collapsed some months ago.
"This whole transaction 1 a fraud," de
clares the commission, "not only upon
the public, which Is dependent upon this
utility for its street car service, but also
upon the bond and note holders of this
utility, because to tho extent that money
Is diverted to Improper purposes theso
creditors are defrauded."
The commission finds that "Mr. Cal
houn and the stockholders Joined in this
plunder, "which was authorized by reso
lution of tho director at the expense of
the public and? the company's creditors."

ton his resignation from the govern
ment position and filed his papers for
the gubernatorial race, subject to the
Mr. Hammond, In his announcement,
reviews tho fact that he was one of tho
first in the state to favor the popular
.lullnn .f T'l...l U..... t
that he helped to prepare the way for It,
by convention nominations, long before
such elections becamo legally possible.
He also recalls that as one of the first
advocates of tho primary system, he
urged its adoption to secure the freest
and fullest expression of the popular
will; that he advocated the anti-pass
law and supported tho 2-cent fare law,
railroad terminal taxation, an elec
tive rallrond commission: that he was a
supporter of tho Initiative and referen
dum. In thfa announcement he declares that
he stands for extension of suffrage to
women, as "their right." He declares the
present need of the state Is a business
administration, and a period of construc
tive work, to build up the Industries of
the state, rather than one to Impose
reforms upon the people.
No Prouriiin of Iteform.
In his announcement Mr. Hammond
I have ho program of reform 1 would
Impose upon tho people. Though I think
there is always room for improvement, I
would not upset all established methods
of legislative procedure. 1 would bo par
ticularly pleased with tho official oppor
tunity to contrlbuto to the solution of the
problem Involving the efficiency of tho
rural school. I am convinced that In Its
proper development will bo found a rem
edy for no mo unsatisfactory rural condi
tions. Through It, I believe, as un educa
tional and social factor, we aro to be
saved from a condition of landlordism
In filing 1 deem It permissible to atato
that I havo been for nearly thirty-flvo
years a citizen of Nebraska and havo
during all this time been In afctlve or
directing control of the newspaper 1 own
In part. It has always been a republican
paper. Through It. nnd by personal ef
forts, I have contributed what I could to
the republican causo. It has shown, as I
believe, a straight enough course to give
assurance of Its republicanism, and has
been progressive enough to Justify my
appeal for tho support of whatever party
factions may exist.
The party platform convention will bo
held In July. Tho wisdom of tho multi
tude of counsel Is greater than the wis
dom of a single individual. I am confi
dent a republican convention would not
take any position I could not consistently
The primary contest ought to be so
conducted that there will be no 111 results.
The fighting Bhould bo reserved for tho
opposition after the primaries. I urn de
posed to merely sumblt my candidacy to
republicans in state-wide caucus and let
them be Judgo without solicitation of my
fitness for the governorship. I believe
the corrupt practices act should be con
formed to. If I cannot be nominated and
elected without violating that law, as the
public believes It too often done, then t
must and should remain In private sta
tion. Ran for Congress Defore.
